    Without Wesley could we be a sleeper???

    He seems to think if Brackins can step it up then we very well could.

    I think it is possible if Garrett and Brackins have a great inside-out thing going and Lucca is a dead-eye.

    I love this quote in the article:

    improvement is altogether possible with the addition of guard Lucca Staiger, a 6-foot-5 wing who was declared ineligible this season by the NCAA, which determined the German's participation on a club team in violation of existing rules despite evidence Staiger received no payments.

    Is this sleeper in the sense that Snow White was put to sleep until a prince came to save her? Or maybe, sleeper in the sense that The Macho Man Randy Savage just put us in a sleeper hold and we are now out for the count?

    Yes, in two ways, either we could be a big surprise with low expectations, or we could do horrible and make you fall asleep by watching our games.

    It is amazing what Tim Floyd did after 6 seniors from Hoibergs class departed. With all new guys they won 22 games, including the Big 8 Tournament Title. If these guys can buy into the the system and make it work, there is a chance they could have a good year. Look at the KSU game. Wesley was a non factor, actually he was terrible. It was the other guys that put us in position to win that game.

    I think we would have been a sleeper with Wesley. Also, Floyd brought in 4 juco guys who were ready to contribute right away that season.

    I think the one major thing we have in our favor is college basketball reinvents itself every year. More so than any other sport, college basketball can be completely different from year to year. Our team will be different next year. Coaching changes, and player changes will make our conference very different next year. Even rules changes will make the sport itself different next year. With so many variables, if a team can come together well, anything is possible.

    Really, I don't think we're out at all. I'm still guessing that this bonds the team, and we sneak up on some folks.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Without Wesley could we be a sleeper???

    This really doesn't suprise me, we should still be better next year than we were this year. Wesley was a non-factor for much of the season as it was.
    I'm looking forward to the upcoming season.

    Re: Without Wesley could we be a sleeper???

    You must also must factor in the loss of Rashon our true inspirational leader, Jiri our European, Brock the shooter, CoryJ our Minnesotan who was berated by some but underrated in my opinion. New additions should about equal the losses.

    I don't think there's all that far to go in the other direction.

    Re: Without Wesley could we be a sleeper???

    Looks to me like those that remain on our roster from last year's team and those that are coming in new have a great deal of opportunity...should they have the ability and should they choose to sieze it.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Re: Without Wesley could we be a sleeper???

    I said before I thought we were NCAA bound next year... but now I'm not so sure with WJ gone. The chance is still there, and everything will have to fall into place just right (i.e. Brackins becoming a consistent inside threat, Lucca living up to the hype, DG continuing his momentum that he was quickly gaining by the end of last season)

    Just wait and see. I wouldn't be surprised if we find ourselves following both major sports' seasons into December this year.
